On my 2017 Ford the RV TPMS is part of the trailer back up camera option.
You get a camera to mount on the back of the trailer hard wired to a sender that you mount forward on the trailer that also relays the TPMS signal. It all integrates into the dash screens.
My two observations, the TPMS does not monitor temp, and I never use the back up cam, I rely on my spotter.
The package is around $700 if I recall and not sure if I would get it again although I like not having another screen on the dash. The TPMS works great though and I don't really worry too much about temp, I check that at every stop which for us is about every 2 hours.
I don't know if they've changed any on the newer trucks but that's what mine has.

I guess I'll stay withe TST 507 since my wife and I are two of the three people in the world with her sister the third, or so it seems, that don't own smart phones, still relying on flip phones. With that said, I think the well proven TST is probably still the best for my needs plus they have great customer service.

HaHa, you're not alone out there Dave. I know several folks still with flips.
We recently had to upgrade DW's phone because she takes so many pix and needed more RAM. We just gave her old Galaxy 5 to the SIL who was notified that her flip would be going dead next month, so she got a free one just in time.
Hope yours hangs in there awhile longer.

Jim, My wife actually has a hand me down iPhone 6 from daughter #3 that she only uses to take pictures. She wont take the time to figure it out and activate it on Verizon nor can she do more then make or take a call on the ancient Samsung Convoy 3.



I'm guessing that when we are comfortable to again do more wandering, we may, no guarantee, may move to the 21st century. But not holding my breath
Dang - hijacked another thread - sorry. It wont happen again (until it does)

Hopefully there is some improvement on 2021 Fords as far as the RV TPMS for the RV. Although , a sharp increase in pressure, would indicate a possible overheating issue. I would think as long as the pressures run pretty consistent you would be good to go.

I believe the TST 507 is costing north of $300 now , more if you want to do the tow vehicle. I am not sure I would pass on the option, camera ,and TPMS for $700 especially if there has been some improvement. The truck my son is ordering I know the MSRP is slightly over 83K, not sure he will caught up in another $700. Its something he for sure will need to look into .

I run the TST 507, great system, but I sure would not miss that monitor, IMO its a necessary nuisance . I don't care for having to plug it in, the wire ,having it on the dash or console, it never seems like there is a good place for it . Having an app on a I phone or integrated system seems very attractive. If circumstances change or I decide on a new truck, or RV I will surely look into an alternative .

If its an option you have to pay extra for, obviously I would make sure that system will work for the RV first. Probably an expensive mistake if it doesnít.
I believe as time goes on ,and from the look of things ,these aftermarket TPMS will be less needed . Most trucks now require no add on TPMS , now with these integrated systems for the RV ,plus the cameras , I would sure not pass on it . I would guess improvements will be made as time goes on .

The TST 507 monitors tire temperature as well as pressure. Last summer on a recently resurfaced highway, the black pavement was putting out high temperatures and we could watch the tire temperature increase.
